EARLY LIFE- Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a women 's rights activist, editor, and writer. She was born on the 12th November 1815, in Johnstown, New York. She was a lawyer’s daughter and showed her desire to excel in knowledgeable and other spheres. She graduated from the Emma Willard 's Troy Female Institution in 1832. She was then pulled to the women 's rights movements through visiting her cousin, Gerrit Smith.
And had 2 loving parents, Daniel Anthony & Lucy Reid. Her family had a big impact in her life, pushing her to do better & work harder. Gratefully, In 1851 she met some who became her lifelong best friend, Elizabeth Cady Stanton who ALSO became her co-worker in the social reform activities mostly in the fight for women 's rights. The both of them in 1863 founded “The Women 's State Temperance Society’ after they were not allowed to speak at a temperance conference because of her gender.
Factory owners, business owners, and some women were not the only people who did not like the idea of women voting. The pious did not want women to have the right to vote either. A clergyman asked Susan B. Anthony whether she would rather have a son of hers attend Buffalo Bill’s show on a Sunday instead of church, she replied, ”he would learn far more.” The devoutly religious did not take this very well and thought that it confirmed the “fundamental wickedness of Anthony’s suffragist movement” (Larson 286). This criticism did not stop women from later getting the right to
In her article, Suellen says “...it was somehow indecent to risk laying my family bare for the sake of Ann’s personal expression of grief.” It appears that Ann is somewhat selfish in this aspect, because she refused Suellen’s requests to find a smaller publisher or ask for no publicity. In Truth and Beauty, Ann writes about intimate conversations between her and Lucy, as can be seen in her writing: “She was completely, wretchedly miserable, but then told me after the fact it was because she had been on a huge heroin bender before she moved and decided that she would quit cold turkey when she got to Brooklyn” (page 245). If I were Lucy, I would likely imagine that because I had told her such secrets in confidence, she wouldn’t go out and share them with the world. And then, as Suellen and Ann both say in their literary works: “That was my

In one instance, a doctor she looked up to, Dr. Corydon Le Ford, said to her, “I wonder if politics is a matter for women?” when Elizabeth stood on the “Free Soil” side in a vote, every man on that side rioted for Elizabeth, while she just smiled and left, not bothering to fight (Pg. 118-119). Once, amongst talking to herself, Elizabeth said, “I can not go on living alone!” and her sister heard so asked her if she had meant marriage. Elizabeth insisted no because one career is enough to begin with (Pg. 179).
Luckily for him, he immigrated to England where he studied at Cambridge university. As a young child, Bronte and her four eldest sisters, were sent to the Clergy Daughters School in Cowan Bridge, Yorkshire. This school that she attended was very harsh as well as physically demanding. Her two eldest sisters developed tuberculosis and died while at this school, causing Bronte’s father to bring back Charlotte and her sister, Emily. When Charlotte returned to her town of Haworth, she was able to escape into a world of creativity and imagination.
Also this organization worked diligently with President Wilson to transcend a Constitutional Amendment of woman suffrage. The second organization was named the NWP, National Women’s Party which persuaded and worked with the president to also have Congress pass the Amendment of woman suffrage(Schneider 7). However, before this, the right to vote was not given to any women which pushed them to fight for their rights. This was first stated in the 15th amendment allowing everyone to vote besides women. This eventually caused the women to go crazy and start organizations to fight for them and the other women (Frost-Knappman
In October, 1903, together with her daughters, Emmeline created the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), with a permanent motto of “Deeds, not words.” The organization was so named to “emphasize its democracy” and “define its object as political rather than propagandist.” The WSPU was also composed of women from all the different classes, exclaiming that women suffrage was desired by all women. A unique aggressive militant tactics that defied the notion of ‘proper women’ was adopted, such as disrupting parliament members’ speeches, held street meetings to increase people’s awareness, and strikes. As the reform of law had to be agreed by the government, this idea behind the militancy and attacks on both private as well as public properties were highlighted as Emmeline exclaimed, “There is something that governments care far more for than human life, and that is the security of property, and so it is through property that we shall strike the enemy.” While participating in such activities was effective since it drew attention to the cause, doing so required a substantial commitment from the woman who broke social mores and drew attention also to herself. Every militant act of the W. S. P. U. required bravery from each member and Pankhurst encouraged them through resisting the government, even to the point of being sentenced to time in prison. Her campaign was further strengthen by her exclamation that women had suffered for their families, but never for themselves, and thus, women also have the rights to express themselves by exercising political rights.
